As you know last week I went to Bridport market..... I was going to share my goodies but the moment has past now! But I did want to share this......
This building took my breath away when we turned the corner..... yes it's a bit of a mess but you don't see buildings like this any more. The sign in the window says it's opening as a '50's diner soon...... if you live in or visit Bridport please let me know when it opens so I can go back!
This morning I set off to the boot sale
And very glad I did too!
I needed a phone case for my new iPhone 4 that OH gave me but I found lots of other goodies!!
This lovely little shell box..... my friend fell in love with them in the latest Cath magazine, they were £6 but not on the web or any shops we visited. I found a very small one in Lyme Regis last week for £1.20 but this one is much bigger & was only £1!! It has a little damage to one shell on the side but I'm sure she won't mind.
I was just walking away from the man when I spotted this....
I'm not a good sewer & I'm not sure I'll use it but for only £10 I thought it was a good buy. I could always sell it as it's never been used or even opened!
Talking about sewing take a look at this beauty...
I've wanted a manual sewing machine for a long time & this one was in perfect condition & working.
I got it for £30 which I thought was a good price. I'm trying to find out the age, there was one on the Jones website with a similar number dated 1925..... I thought 1930's so maybe not far out.
I spotted another for sale all rusty & the handle wouldn't turn.... someone was buying it for £30 too!
I've given it a go but the needle keeps unthreading, any ideas why?
And last but not least
A beautiful Jubilee rug!!
I nearly didn't buy it but my brother made me go back.
I have no home for it but hey it'll fit in somewhere!
Isn't odd how you can visit one week & buy nothing & the next there's everything you've ever wanted??!
Thankfully we had the pushchair
Which meant poor Matthew had to walk!
Sorry for the long post........ back soon!
